OBEETEE is one of the world's largest and oldest hand-woven rug companies. A dynamic, creative and ethical company, OBEETEE has been driven by design excellence, quality craftsmanship and process innovation throughout its almost 100-year history. Today, OBEETEE has one of the largest and most modern rug manufacturing facilities in the world, including the industry’s first water effluent treatment plant. However, we place an equal focus on the integrity of our craftsman heritage. Our more than 25,000 independent weavers create extraordinary woven carpets, using traditional artisanal skills that have been handed down through generations. Our craftspeople are the cornerstone of our business, and therefore, we place great focus and responsibility on our contribution not only to our weavers, but also to their families and the communities in which they live. As such, OBEETEE is the first company in the handmade woolen carpet industry to be awarded the Social Accountability System Certificate (SA 8000) by Det Norske Veritas (DNV), which is one of the most reputable auditing/certification bodies accredited by Social Accountability International of New York, in 2004.
